As beautiful as it may be, their friends' country home is not where Lady Vespasia wishes to spend Christmas with her new husband, Victor Narraway. She would rather pass a relaxing holiday at home with him -- especially because Victor, former head of the London Special Branch, seems to be hiding some undercover dealings with the other guests who have gathered at the spacious estate. As tensions grow among the couples, the young and beautiful Iris Watson-Watt becomes the center of several men's focus. Unbeknownst to Vespasia, Iris carries a sensitive package that she must pass to Victor, in the hope of unmasking a British traitor. While Victor plots his moves, he is reminded of a similar case from twenty years before, when a young Frenchwoman also carried a clandestine message -- one that resulted in her murder, unsolved to this day. Victor has always been tormented by his failure to protect her, and now, with all eyes on Iris, Victor must act fast before history repeats itself. With the joy of Christmas at risk of being forgotten and Vespasia feeling alone at this time of year meant to be shared with loved ones, Victor must ultimately learn to forgive himself in order to save both his country and the spirit of the holiday.
